Bead Soup Blog Hop 2014

This year I am able to participate in the Bead Soup Blog Hop. I swopped beads with Nikki Sargeant Meiners. She sent me the most fabulous selection of vintage beads in luscious colors.
    I am doing my reveal earlier than planned as going on a cruise tomorrow so will not be here for the blog hop. I will catch up with everybody's blog posts when I return.  The first picture is my glorious soup. I have had not had as much time as I would have liked to work on my soup. I will probably do something fab with the rose,the buttons and the stunning yellow beads when I return from my break. Some of the beads that I added are repurposed and the metal components are embossed copper that I have been experimenting with. I hope you enjoy and don't mind too much that I am revealing all a little early.
